Start Packing: The Best and Comfortable Wardrobe Staples to Pack for Your Next Summer Vacation Now

summer travel outfits

Have you ever had a hard time packing the best clothing for your summer vacation? Do you have a tendency to pack the wrong things for your summer travel? You are not the only one. 

I use to struggle with what clothing to pack for my summer break. The reason it was difficult was finding the right clothing for the weather and the activities that I planned on doing. I also had to consider what was the perfect outfit to wear while traveling.

No one to spend hours traveling in an uncomfortable outfit. I also did not want to look like a bummy either. So I decided wanted to create looks that were effortless but comfortable. 

If you want to know how to achieve a chic and feel good look you came to the right place. I have created a list of items you should bring and also created so looks. 

This post contains affiliate links. If you click or purchase any of these items, I will get a small commission at no cost to you. 

Buy cool clothing

No, I am not talking about looking hip but rather not wearing clothing that makes you sweat! Pick fabrics that are breathable such as cotton or jersey. 


Bring items that can be mixed and match to give you plenty of outfits without a lot of clothes. 

Items that are lightweight can be layered with ease!
Bring items that can be layered like a sleeveless maxi dress.

A cardigan is a great item to have because you can use it to layer it or if the temperature changes when you travel. 

Variety is the Key

Bring comfortable shoes for hitting the tourist spots and some cute shoes for going to dinner. Bring a blouse that you don't have to worry about getting wrinkled or stained. A t-shirt is great to have because it can be layered, dressed up and down! 

Low Maintenance is the way to go!

Bring items that do not wrinkle when packed. 
Jersey item is perfect for travel because they do not necessarily have to be ironed. Bring items that do not easily stain or hold scents.

Where your heaviest items on the plane 

For example, if you have hiking boots where those on your travels. That way you can free up space in your carry one. Or if you have a jacket or cardigan wear that on your plane ride.

Beach Bag: 13 Essential Items to have in Your Beach Bag This Summer

Have you ever had a hard time figuring out what to take to put in your bag for your trip to the beach? I mean there are so many things you may need to take to the beach with you. But you don't want to pack too much. Well, I have come up with 13 essentials items you should have for when you go to the beach

Even if you not going to the beach there are still some essentials to have on hand for your summer travel. Rather you go to the beach or the mountains, you will need these things. All of these items are things you have on hand if plan on spending so time outside. 

Pack these items and you will won't have to worry about not having everything you. So get a pen and paper and write down these items. Once you have your list all you have to worry about is enjoying the summer. 

1. Bug Repellant

Since you are outdoors you can need to have bug repellant. It is hard to find one that is not harsh on your skin. Look for products that are natural. Most likely they will not only work for your skin but also would be a better product. 

2. Sunblock

My favorite Sunblock products have to be Neutrogena, Hawaiian Topic, and Banana Boat (Cool Zone is the best for those hot days).

3. Sunglasses

To keep the sun out of your eyes and help you look even cooler!

4. Mesh Bag for Wet Clothing

If you are the beach chances are you will get your clothing or suit wet. Instead of allowing your clothes to soak up your 

5. Face Wipes

For those hot sticky days.

6. SPF Lipgloss or Balm

Your lips also need protection from the sun. There are many options to choose from so pick your favorite flavor or brand. These are my top picks!


I always try to keep deodorant in my bag, especially in the long hot summer days. A mini deodorant would be best to store in your bag!

8. Hat

When I use to work outdoors I made sure that I wear a hat to shield the sun from my face and to prevent me from getting too hot. Tip: To prevent your hat from being flattened you could stuff your towel with it before you pack it in your bag, hang the tag on the outside of your bag by lopping it on your bag handle, or simply place it on top of everything else you packed!

9. Portable Charger 

Just in case your battery dies well you are travel or outside. 

10. Towel 

You will need a beach towel if you plan on laying on the beach. 

11. Water Bottle 

Just in case you get thirsty. Save some money bringing your own drinks to the beach. 

12.  Lock Case for Valuables 

If you going to the pool or taking a dip in the ocean, you need to protect your valuables. If there is no locker for your items you need to invest in a lock case. This lock case can keep your valuables like your phone or credit cards. To lock the case you have to have a four digit pin. You can secure it to a fixed item to project someone from moving it. 

13. Cooler 
To keep your drinks or food cool. Also, a great item to have for those who have medications that need to remain cool. 

Conclusion: Whatever you plan these are useful things to have on hand if you going outside. Rather you working outside or enjoying a day on a beach, these items will help you.
